Hi all, 

I do not find it very efficient to start re-inventing the wheel while the OECD 
Privacy Guidelines talk about "data subject" since 1980. This terminology is 
much older (seventies) and was also taken up by later works in this area. 
"User" and "Consumer" are not the only data subjects who can be tracked. Can 
we remain consistent?
